MRP showed us a few new things at Eurobike 2016, including these upgrade cartridges for Rockshox forks. They replace the top cap, air valve and bottomless tokens to make your suspension more tuneable. A dial on top performs the same function as tokens, but once installed you can change the tuning while you’re out riding.
As well as that, they had new forks, an oval chainring, and some chainguides. Read on to see more!
Following on from this, they were showing their new ribbon fork, so named after a the Ribbon Trail in MRP’s home Colorado. The Ribbon Trail apparently has a bit of everything from steep tech to wide open motorway sections, and they say the fork is designed to handle it all.
This is the Raze coil shock. No weight given, but it’s intended for downhill and, like the Ribbon fork, built with tunability in mind, with high and low speed compression damping circuits, and a shim stack main piston.
Wil reckons MRP have done oval rings before, but the one they have on show is new and they’ll be making a few varieties. Direct mount SRAM ones will be 30, 32 and 34t, 104 BCD will be 32 or 34t, and cince models 30, 32, and 34t. Cinch models will allow you to adjust the clocking, and there will also be boost chainline spaced ones in SRAM and cinch varieties.
